In the paper: “Amberlyst-15 catalyzed acetylation of phenols and alcohols under solvent free conditions”, released recently in Recyclable Catalysis, an open access journal by Versita, Prof. Manoj Pande and Prof. Shriniwas D. Samant from the University Institute of Chemical Technology in Mumbai, India offer a novel and highly sustainable method for the acylation of phenols and alcohols. They found that Amberlyst-15 is an active catalyst for the acylation of phenols and alcohols by means of acetic anhydride as an acylating agent at room temperature under heterogeneous conditions.

The scientists confirmed that applications of this catalyst allow mild and highly selective transformations and synthesis in a facile and environmentally friendly manner. Equally worth mentioning is the fact that the catalysts can be recovered by filtration and recycled several times without loss of activity and selectivity…
